Glazed Lemon Coconut Bars

I have been looking for a recipe to use our fresh coconut that sounded good (I don't really like coconut) and also wasn't huge in calories. I found the perfect treat here. Each bar is only 150 calories.

1cup Bisquick Heart Smart® mix
2tablespoons powdered sugar
2tablespoons firm margarine or butter
3/4cup granulated sugar
1/4cup flaked coconut
1tablespoon Bisquick Heart Smart® mix
2teaspoons grated lemon peel
2tablespoons lemon juice
1/2cup fat-free egg product
Lemon Glaze
1/2cup powdered sugar
1tablespoon lemon juice

1.Heat oven to 350ºF. In small bowl, mix 1 cup Bisquick mix and 2 tablespoons powdered sugar. Cut in margarine, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through mixture in opposite directions), until crumbly. Press in ungreased 8-inch square pan.
2.Bake uncovered about 10 minutes or until light brown. Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix all remaining bar ingredients. Pour coconut mixture over baked layer.
3.Bake about 25 minutes longer or until set and golden brown. Loosen edges from sides of pan while warm.
4.In small bowl, mix glaze ingredients until smooth; spread over bars. Cool completely, about 1 hour. For bars, cut into 4 rows by 3 rows.
